The Doylestown Hospital Cardiac Rehabilitation Program-Phase 1
(Inpatient Care at Doylestown Hospital)
- Our Heart Institute Cardiovascular ICU provides one-on-one personal care, and our open heart surgery patients receive 2 to 4 exercise sessions each day.
- All education is one-on-one. We cover all appropriate topics, so that when you are discharged you feel comfortable about your home care. A nurse will call you at home to check on your progress.
- Exercise is individualized according to your tolerance. Patients will participate in range of motion exercises, walking and stairclimbing.
- All bypass and valve surgery patients are discharged from the hospital with an exercise plan and a date to start outpatient cardiac rehab (patients from other regions are given information about local cardiac rehab programs in their area).
